[1]
(CH-UP) button: Increments current tuned channel to the next higher channel. Holding this button down
will fast scroll through the channels. Channel display will blink to indicate displayed channel is in selection
and has not been entered. Press ENT button to confirm. If 5 seconds pass without pressing the ENT button,
the display will return to its last programmed state and stop blinking.
[2]
(CH-DN) button: Decrements channel to next lower major channel. Holding this button down will fast scroll
through the channels. Channel display will blink to indicate displayed channel is in selection and has not been
entered. Press ENT button to confirm. If 5 seconds pass without pressing the ENT button, the display will
return to its last programmed state and stop blinking.
NOTE: The DTS860 requires the actual RF Channel setting, not the virtual channel number.
Most broadcasters maintain their analog channel identity by utilizing the new digital channel’s PSIP (Program
and System Information Protocol) feature. It may also be referred to as the “tune to” (NAB) or as a “virtual”
channel. Digital TV’s along with digital demodulators such as Drake's DAV860 use the virtual channel number to
tune to the particular program that in most cases is transmitted over a completely different channel number. This
is not the case with the DTS860. To find the actual RF channel, use the following website: www.antennaweb.org
[3] Two Digit Channel Display: Used to identify program channel. The decimal point will always be lit. For
channels above 99, the +100 LED will be lit.
[4] One Digit Channel Display: Indicates the current frequency/channel plan.
S = STD (CATV)
I = IRC (CATV)
H = HRC (CATV)
A = Off Air (Broadcast UHF/VHF)
[5] +100 LED: For channels above 99, the +100 LED will be lit. For example, for standard CATV channel
125 the +100 LED will on and number 25 will display on the 2-digit display "S" on the 1-digit display.
[6] Lock LED: Lights when set for QAM input mode.
NOTE: If the unit is not locked to the incoming channel, the LED will flash.
[7] ENT button: Must be pressed to confirm channel selection, RF mode, and baud rate.

Front Panel Controls (continued)
[8] RF Mode button: When the RF button is pushed, the module will switch from the sleep mode to the frequency
plan editing mode. The LED display will indicate current Channel number and RF frequency plan.
Pressing the RF button while in the frequency plan editing mode, will step through the RF frequency plans on the
LED display in the following sequence:
S = STD (CATV)
I = IRC (CATV)
H = HRC (CATV)
A = Off Air (Broadcast UHF/VHF)
The display will blink when the display plan does not match the current program plan. Use the ENTER button
once the desired plan is displayed to make any changes. If no buttons are pushed within 5 seconds, the DTS860
will revert back to its previously saved setting.
[9] Baud Rate button: Industry standard default baud rates based upon the modulation mode selected above
are preloaded. For ITU-T J.83 Annex B, the North American digital cable standard, the default rates are:
64 QAM - 5.056941 Mbd
256 QAM - 5.360537 Mbd
If a different baud rate is required follow the directions below.
When the Baud Rate button is pushed the DTS860 will switch from sleep mode to the baud rate editing mode.
The LED display will then indicate the baud rates current most significant digit and decimal multiplier.
Pushing the Baud Rate button again while in the editing mode will sequence through the baud rate settings. The
digits and decimal multipliers will be indicated on the LED display as follows for a 5.360537 Mbd example.
- 5*1,000,000
56
35
- 3*100,000
64
- 6*10,000
03
- 0*1,000
52
- 5*100
31
- 3*10
70
- 7*1
When the baud rate digit with multiplier is displayed, pushing either the UP or DN buttons will change the digit in
sequence (0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-0…). If the digit doesn’t match the current baud rate in memory, the LED display
will blink (digit and multiplier). If the baud rate does not match the current baud rate, the LED display will blink
(digit only).
To exit the baud rate editing mode, either push the ENTER button which will invoke any changes made, or if no
buttons are pushed within a 5 second period the DTS860 will revert back to its memory settings.
[10] SNR/QAM-8VSB button: Pressing the SNR button once will switch the DTS860 out of sleep mode and into
the SNR display mode. While displaying the current SNR, pressing the SNR button again will switch to the input
modulation edit mode. The display will now indicate the current modulation setting (xxxQAM or xxVSB).
Pressing the SNR button once more, the DTS860 will begin to scroll through the different modulation modes
available. Input modulation modes will show on the LED display in the following sequence:
_8 U -8VSB mode
64 B - 64QAM-B
56 B -256QAM-B
64 A - 64QAM-A
28 A - 128QAM-A
56 A -256QAM-A
Should the indicated input modulation mode not match the current mode, the LED display will blink. To exit the
editing mode use the ENTER button to invoke any changes or if no buttons are pushed within 5 seconds, the
DTS860 will revert back to its previously saved state.
[11] PROG MON MINI-USB CONNECTOR: Used to interface to a computer in order to reprogram the unit with
firmware or software changes.
Operation
7
[1] Power-save mode: After approximately 3 minutes of no interaction, the unit will enter into its power-save
mode by turning off all front-panel LEDs and displays. The dot of the 2-digit LED will remain lit to indicate unit
is powered and operating normally. Pressing any button will bring the unit out of power-save mode and current
channel and modes will be displayed.
[2] Unit Reset: Holding the RF Mode and Baud Rate buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds will reset the unit.
All three digits of the unit will display a countdown from 5 to 0 and then reset. After reset, the unit will return to its
last programmed state. A reset is required after a firmware or software update.
[3] Alerts: The DTS860 has 2 alerts to indicate a non-typical condition or error in operation. The 1-digit LED will
display ‘E’. The 2-digit LED will display the condition number as described below.
01 E – Internal communication error between microcontroller and decoder. Perform a Unit Reset or disconnect/
reconnect the power to correct this.
02 E – No signal error. TV/monitor screen will display ‘No signal’. Verify that incoming RF is connected and
desired/undesired channels are at recommended levels. Press the SNR button and confirm that signal-to-noise
ratio is greater than 20 for 8VSB, 25 for QAM 64, 30 for QAM 256. Also confirm that the correct frequency plan,
modulation and baud rate have been set.
